I reckon it would look pritty good aye.

but agree with everyone else try it out with some vinyl first just to check you like the look of it.

btw the vinyl idea is a great one, good thinking, that way you can seee what the bar will look like without having to paint it and realize u don't like it or wanna change something

I have seen your quality of work, very nice by the way and i think the darker silver willlook really good. if you put alot of hours (and you probally will) it will look fine but you definatley need to paint it either mercury silver or lightning strike the mettalic will set it off. or so i belive.

good luck.

I reckon that looks suprisingly good. Something different at least and it has a bit of a fpv mix with xr look.

Looks better than your 'chop.

As suggested (again and again), do it with vinyl.

Paint will look dodgy as soon as you get a stone chip in it.

that looks REALY good what you done with the tape. Should look awsum when done with the paint.

and to PIMP_LTD, last time I heard he hadn't painted the bonnet yet since he put the new one with the buldge on.

Definitely looks better then what I pictured or your chop!!

I think it sort of grows on you... a bit more each time you look at it...

But more importantly... do you like it?

Looks really good!!!

I must say when i saw the photo shop... I thought to myself "please don't destroy a nice bar"
But now it's clean and tidy. GOOD WORK. I always use vinal "to see how it looks" sometimes I have even kept the vinal on there... It's cheap and easy to apply... oh and easy to remove to change the colour... Great work mate :D

even brainstorming ways i can create a "groove" along the edge of the black section to make it look like it belongs more -(black dark section)
